Dunhill: County Quaint Bent Egg (5) (2018) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-015-4757
Marked by rounded flanks and slight tapers toward the rim and the heel, the bowl of this bent Egg from Dunhill is softly contoured and gentle in hand. Such shaping pairs naturally with the sinuous shank-and-stem combination, which is oval of cross section for even more demure posture in profile. The bent Egg isn't a shape found on The White Spot's numbered shape chart, so this Group 5 rendition is featured in the Quaint series. It presents quite a genteel aesthetic, though the proportions house a robust chamber, and the County line's sandblasted finish adds rustic charm.
Like the Cumberland finish, Dunhill's County line pairs rich, cumberland stems with delightfully textured sandblasts. Typically, County pieces wear a lighter stain, often falling between the Cumberland and Tanshell hues, and since its introduction in 1986, with only a brief hiatus, the County remains stalwart within Dunhill's portfolio, especially desired by lovers of brindled vulcanite and warm sandblasts.-Truett Smith
